PAR Handicap Cup

Handicap cup is based on Point A Rally (PAR) scoring, sometimes called American scoring.

This means a point is scored every rally regardless of who is serving.

Handicap Matches are best of 3 games.  Each game is to 15 points.

Where player handicaps are both either + or – the player with the higher ranking number needs to score 15 points to win. 2 points clear is still needed like a normal PAR scoring game

The other player will need to score 15 + the difference in the handicap.

The ranking values are all positive to make it easier to calculate

 

Example 1 : Alex is on 0, Ash in on 9, the difference is 9 points in Ash’s favour.

  • Ash needs to score 15 points to win a game while Alex needs to score 24.
  • best way to score this would be Alex starting on 0, Ash starting on 9, target is 24.

Example 2 : Scott is on 9, Brian in on 20, the difference is 11 points in Brian’s favour.

  • Brian needs to score 15 points to win a game while Scott needs to score 26.
  • best way to score this would be Scott starting on 0, Brian starting on 11, target is 26.
